Deepening our understanding of issues confronting contemporary society
The Griffith Centre for Social and Cultural Research (GCSCR) is dedicated to increasing our understanding of current challenges facing the modern world. Through the application of innovative humanities and social science research, incorporating the knowledge of academics from a broad range of interrelated disciplines, we are at the cutting edge of humanities and social science discourse. Our Centre's research is focused on the following contemporary themes: History, Media and Change; Mobilities, Communities and In/securities; Heritage and Wellbeing; Language, Culture and Belonging.
Senior archaeologist Professor Paul Tacon and senior sociologist Professor Sarah Baker, who head the Centre's 'Heritage & Wellbeing' research theme, have published this critical review of the heritage and wellbeing literature in the journal, Heritage. This important work in this emerging field comes from a Symposium coordinated by Tacon and Baker, 'New Directions in Heritage and Wellbeing'
